Mindspill is a 4 piece heavy metal band out of Charlotte, NC. We are Troy Davis(guitar), Allan Starnes(bass), Shane Schronce(drums), and Nate Bushman(vocals). The whole thing started with Nate and Troy. We found Shane around the middle of 2000. Then we had the hold back of trying to keep a bass player. We went through a couple bass players until Ryan Joffe answered one of our ads around early 2001. We all just seemed to click really well. After playing numerous shows and recording our first E.P., Ryan just wasn't feeling it anymore. Ryan left the band in September of 2002. It was a clean break with no drama. We are still very good friends with Ryan, and we wish him the best of luck in all of his future endeavors. About a couple weeks after Ryan left, Allan Starnes (formerly of System Conflict) joined the band. Allan brings a lot of intensity to the band and fits in really well. Our stage presence has risen enormously since Allan joined. It seems that he was the missing link. It just wouldn't be right if MINDSPILL was not Troy, Nate, Allan, and Shane. We have just recently finished recording our second E.P. entitled "RISE OF THE NEW MACHINE GOD", which is set to be released in late February of 2003. We have been influenced by Sepultura, Slipknot, Mudvayne, Machine Head, Pantera, etc... You get the picture, we are a VERY HEAVY metal band. No bullshit here, just in your face heavy metal. We are always looking for shows to play, so if you are a band checking out IUMA for heavy metal bands, we would love to gig with you if you are coming through Charlotte, NC. But we are not just limited to Charlotte, we will travel within reason. That's about all for now, bye.
